Thousands of Victorians benefit each year from the legal projects we fund through our Grants Program.

The projects we support help Victorians to understand the law and use it to improve their lives. We are drawn to grant projects that have a connection to our own work – legal projects that reach out to the community, engage Victorians with the law or provide better legal information for Victorians.

Depending on your project budget, you can apply for a General Grant or a Small Grant. Our grants are only available to organisations.

Applying for a foundation grant gives you access to our in-house skills and expertise, and our free training, seminars and resources.

If you want to discuss an idea for a grant, or are unsure what grant to apply for, contact our Grants Manager. Contact us early to take full advantage of our knowledge and experience.

To better understand what type of projects we want to fund, read our grants criteria or browse our list of grants recipients.
